JENNI’S JAM: Superstition didn’t keep the crowd from celebrating Jenni Kayne’s new store at the Brentwood Country Mart in Santa Monica, Calif., on Friday the 13th. Jessica Biel, Minka Kelly, Shiva Rose, Anna and Rosetta Getty, Minnie Mortimer, Brandon Boyd, Petra Flannery, Rachel Zoe, Nicole Chavez, Elizabeth Stewart, Joe’s Jeans’ Joe Dahan and Activision Blizzard chief executive officer Bobby Kotick all braved a light rain to toast Kayne at a cocktail party held in her store before moving to dinner at Farmshop.
While Oscar-winning screenwriter Stephen Gaghan just wanted to relax after writing for 12 hours straight, Biel was researching her new role playing Vera Miles in “Hitchcock,” a film about the making of Alfred Hitchcock’s “Psycho.” “It’s an incredible time,” she said of the 1960 film, adding that the costumes were “feminine and strong.” One wardrobe the actress didn’t want to discuss was what she’d wear on her wedding day, although she happily showed off her engagement ring from fiancé Justin Timberlake at the party.
